Big Sean Booked For Sexual Misconduct

Rapper Big Sean is in as much trouble as his name might indicate after he was arrested and charged with sexual assault. Currently on tour with Wiz Khalifa, the performer was at a gig in Lewiston, New York when an unidentified woman alerted authorities she'd been touched, assaulted and unlawfully imprisoned by Big Sean and Willie Hansbro. The pair was later taken by police to the station where they were booked and released on five hundred dollars bail a piece.
According to MTV News, Big Sean has already hired heavyweight criminal attorney Scott E. Lemon who issued a statement iterating his client's innocence. “I am confident, that after further investigation, both men will be vindicated.”
With little evidence released and no official word from the woman in question, it's impossible to know whether these charges have any merit whatsoever, but if they do not, I am comfortable in saying this sort of thing is a major downside to being a professional musician. When I was in high school, I thought being a rock star would be great, but as I get older, the idea of groupies kind of scares the shit out of me. Between STDs, pregnancies and misconduct allegations, it seems crazy to think anyone could sleep with a large number of women without eventually landing in hot water. The odds for a celebrity with disposable income must be far worse.
No word yet on when a trial might take place, but we'll be sure to bring you those details. In the mean time, Big Sean is preparing for his first Video Music Awards appearance where he's nominated for best new artist.
